Reference and Research Assistance

Help is available from student library assistants during all library hours of operation. For reference questions and assistance with research, periodicals and other topics, librarians are available from Sunday through Friday. Simply ask at the circulation desk and we will be more than willing to help. For larger projects or research, please schedule a reference appointment.

Text a Librarian

Have a quick question for the library staff? Just text us at library@bostonconservatory.edu (yes, you can text an email address instead of a phone number) anytime the library is open. You will receive a text message back from us as soon as possible.

Reference Appointments

Need to write a research paper? We want to make sure you maximize the use of our resources and can assist you in doing so. As you may or may not know, librarians are always here to help you gather resources. But we also have an official library reference service. 

How it works:

  • Fill out our form. We will reply to confirm your appointment.
  • Come prepared. Search for resources on your own. We will do some investigating ourselves in the meantime.
  • Come in and meet with us. We will compare our findings and hopefully be able to point you to some sources you may not have discovered.
  • Plan ahead—do not wait until the last minute. This stage of information gathering should be done as soon as your topic is assigned.

Fill out the form below to make a reference appointment with a librarian. We will reply to confirm your appointment.
